Driving simulators have been used to support the development of new vehicle systems for many years. \ud The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) as a means of reducing carbon emissions has lead to the emergence of a \ud number of new design challenges related to the performance of EV components and the flow of power under a \ud variety of circumstances. In this paper we describe the integration of an EV drive train test system with a driving \ud simulator to allow the performance of EV systems to be investigated while under the control of real drivers in \ud simulated scenarios. Such a system offers several potential benefits. The performance of EV drive trains can be \ud evaluated subjectively by real world users while the electrical and mechanical properties can be tested under a \ud variety of conditions which would be difficult to replicate using standard drive cycles
